Practical, safe, comfortable family wagon that is also fun to drive
Just service and drive, great reliability, no complaints noises or rattles to speak of.. Just replaced first set of tyres (normal wear)
Excellent 2.5 boxer engine with constant AWD, very smooth, powerful enough for a family wagon and averages about 9.0l/100km primarily around town use. Being a manual, it's also fun and very responsive to drive.
The handling with the standard AWD, and 17' wheels and tyres, is as good as any sports car, but has a very comfortable, controlled ride on any surface.
The interior is very well thought out with lots of room being a wagon, the finish and quality is all top level stuff, no rattles or failures to speak of. The front seats are very comfortable, even on a long trip, and offer lots of back support. Back seat comfortable enough for the two kids, and has a big boot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
